Rossioglossum grande by Mararda Rossioglossum grande by Mararda
Sennelier watercolour painted from life.

This is one of my two Rossioglossum grande orchids that I have collected. I love orchids.

Also known as 'Clown,' or 'Tiger.' orchid due to the large size and yellow/ chestnut barring.

**I will upload a better photo asap.**

I like how you've done the textures of the flowers and the green leaves done well too, good job!

Had a second solo exhibition two months ago. Went ok, paintings did well but the prints were a disappointment, I'm overstocked with them at the moment. Reasonably satisfied given the times we're in! Painting all the time since!

Thankyou Sheldon. :) I do not like this one very much though tbh..:( I think I ruined it with the dreadful wash for the background.

Plus I got very impatient as I have less time to paint now and rushed it. :p

(Also the flowers wilted on the plant before I finished and I did not want to cheat and use one of the photos I took of the specimen, so the flowers are not as accurate as I would like).

I can however amend the background by just rewetting it and going over with white so I even out the tones..So all is not lost..:D
